The CK800G-2 lattice boom crawler was the first sale made by the All Family of Companies since it became a Kobelco crane dealer in July 2017. It was handed over on 21 December at the All Crane yard in Cleveland, Ohio. Further sales are anticipated.
Cleveland-based Kelley which celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2018, operates in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. The new crane will remain in the Cleveland area for work on a full slate of local projects, All said.
Dan Gold, Kelley Steel CEO, commented, “It is a next-level machine with completely upgraded componentry. Its advanced telematics come standard, with detailed daily usage reports that make planned maintenance a breeze. It has an all-new engine that complies with EPA Tier IV final standards. The auto start-stop feature can save up to 30 percent on fuel consumption, plus it offers different counterweight configurations, and the counterweights can be shipped completely flat.”
Gold commented on the value of buying from All Crane, “We chose to purchase from All Crane because we were looking for a dealer who could service our account, who has access to the parts we need, and offers 24-hour service. All, also being in the rental business, understands that when you need something, you need it now. You can’t wait two or three days for parts to fix your crane.”
